As the weather turns chilly and the new year approaches, The Barns continues its lineup of phenomenal artists. If you’re planning to host guests this holiday season and early 2023, bring them along to experience the magic of this intimate venue.
December 1: John Lloyd Young

Celebrate the festive season as Broadway, Tony, and Grammy-winner John Lloyd Young brings songs like “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” “Joy to the World,” and “White Christmas” to life like never before. Young’s signature Frank Sinatra musical stylings supported his role of “Frankie Valli” in the international smash-hit Jersey Boys, a role which he originated and garnered national media attention for. Don’t miss this spectacular artist when he comes to The Barns on December 1.
December 2: Christmas with the Celts
This popular Wolf Trap show is filled with modern Christmas hits, lively Irish carols and dancing, and holiday ballads! Originally a national PBS show that aired on over 200 channels, the success of Christmas with the Celts led to a huge demand for a tour. You’ll jump for joy with all the merriment this spirited performance brings to the stage.
December 3: Holiday Sing-A-Long
A free annual musical celebration, Wolf Trap Holiday Sing-A-Long invites people of all ages to join in on the excitement of the season.

January 26: A.J. Croce
Piano-driven arrangements from Neil Young to The Beach Boys showcase A.J. Croce’s love for a variety of musical traditions. Son of the late Jim Croce, he originally purposely avoided his father’s music so he could create his own identity as a musician. According to Willie Nelson, “The future of entertainment is safe in his [Croce’s] hands.” There are only a few seats left to his January 26 concert.
